Old nail polish has the ability to leave a person’s nails with a stained and discolored appearance. While it is very discouraging to look at these nails when they look so awful, this situation is not impossible to correct. In fact, there are several methods to remove nail polish stains from fingernails.

How to Promote and Stimulate Natural Hair Growth ������������������ 40 by Dr. Edward Tony Lloneau

It has not been proven that any product applied externally to the hair or scalp can promote, stimulate or accelerate natural hair growth. Most people who complain of little or no hair growth are blaming it on the wrong reason.

Business Tips

How Can Employees Show Customers They Care? ����������������������������������� 52 Caring about customers is one of the best ways to differentiate your business and gain long-term consumer loyalty. “Your best strategy is to teach your employees what caring about customers looks like in action,” says Jon Gordon. “Suggest specific tactics they can employ. When they see how good it feels to care—and how good caring is for business—you’ll receive your team’s buy-in and continued participation.”

직원들이 고객들을 보살피고 있다는 것을 어떻게 보여줄 것인가? 고객을 보살피는 것은 당신의 비즈니스를 차별화할 수 있고 장기적인 고객 충성도를 얻을 수 있는 최상의 방법 중 하나이다. “당신의 최고의 전략은 직원들이 고객을 행동으로 보살필 수 있도록 가르치는 것입니다.” Jon Gordon이 말한다. “그들이 이용할 수 있는 특정한 전술을 제안하세요. 보살핌을 받는다는 느낌이 얼마나 좋은 것인지 – 보살핌이 비즈니스를 위해서 얼마나 좋은 것인지- 그들이 보게 될 때, 당신의 팀은 그것에 동의하며 지속적으로 동참하게 될 것입니다.”

Why Happiness Matters �������������������������������� 56 by Henry S. Miller Although some would have you think otherwise, the uniquely human pursuit of happiness is not merely some frivolous idle-time activity for the fortunate few. Instead, it is a serious pursuit—a duty and responsibility for each of us..

행복이 중요한 이유 당신은 그렇게 생각하지 않을 수도 있지만, 인간의 고유한 행복 추구는 단지 몇 가지 행운에 대한 사소한 유휴 시간 활동만은 아니다. 대신, 그것은 진지한 추구 – 우리 각자를 위한 의무와 책임 – 인 것이다.

The Beauty of Charity ������������������������������������������������ 68 There are some things you just cannot say enough about. Don’t believe it? Consider the following for a moment: cute baby puppies, the love shown in warm welcoming hugs as a soldier steps off the plane from serving in foreign lands. Once you see these it is hard to not tell others about them so you can all bask in that joy. The same is true about the charity efforts of the people and companies within the beauty industry, and we explore the work of six beauty businesses.

자선의 아름다움 당신이 단지 충분하다고 말할 수 없는 것들이 몇 가지 있다. 만약 그렇게 생각하지 않는다면, 다음 내용들을 잠깐 생각해 봐라: 귀여운 아기 강아지, 외국에서의 임무를 마치고 비행기에서 내리는 군인들을 환영하는 따뜻한 포옹에서 보여지는 사랑. 당신이 이런 것을 본다면, 다른 사람들에게 그것에 관해 말하지 않기가 힘들 것이며 그 모든 기쁨들을 누릴 수 있게 된다. 그러한 것은 개인이나 단체가 자선을 하는 것에서도 볼 수 있다. 여기에 현재 자선 활동을 활발히 펼치고 있는 여섯 개의 뷰티 업계 회사들을 소개해 본다.

Charming Charity 자선의 아름다움 You know that happy warmth of contentment you get in your heart when you know you have done something good—like helping someone carr y groceries to their apartment, holding the door open for someone, or spotting a friend an extra dollar so they can get the soda they really want to get them through the last hour of work? No matter how small an act of kindness may seem, they all ser ve a greater purpose; making the world a better place.

Expert Advice by Harlan Kirschner

Harlan Kirschner is the founder and owner of the Kirschner Group and the 2014 Spirit of Life Honoree.

The Road to Philanthropy A firsthand look at one man’s journey


s the founder and owner of the Kirschner Group (TKG), I take philanthropy very seriously as one of our company focuses. As a young business entrepreneur 35 years ago when I started the Kirschner Group, I had no idea how important it was to be part of the charities and different organizations in giving back within the beauty industry. As my business began to develop, I learned how very important it is to donate to and support our industries’ philanthropic efforts, as well as supporting personal charities and associations that affected friends and family we loved. Making it Real I remember when “giving back” became a bit more real to me, it turned into a vision rather than my time and money when I had my first visit to the City of Hope. Wow! It moved me how much this one facility does to help people survive and help the families affected by a loved one struck by cancer. It was a truly eye opening experience for me personally and I looked at giving back in a much different light. It became a bit more real where my money was going and encouraged me to do more. I joined the council to immerse myself more with City of Hope and make myself a part of this great organization. I admired the many honorees from City of Hope and all their amazing efforts to raise money and help those in need, and I knew one day that was my goal; I wanted to campaign with my whole TKG team and help those afflicted with cancer. One in three men and two out of three women will be afflicted by cancer in their lifetimes. Hitting Close to Home Throughout my career I was always passionate about this cause, but it was when my daughter fell in love and explained to me that her now husband Chris was a cancer survivor of Hodgkins lymphoma that the passion was 12

OTC Beauty Beauty Magazine Magazine September December 2008 OTC 2014

fueled. As I got to know Chris better I realized the value of City of Hope and that he may not be alive today without the tremendous efforts that research hospitals perform. I continued my journey in serving on the City of Hope council and assisting other honorees and industry leaders to raise support for institutes and causes like City of Hope, always dreaming of one day leading my own campaign. Spirit of Life In July 2013, I got the best news that I was picked as the next Spirit of Life honoree, and as this was an honor in itself, I was thrilled to have the platform to speak to the industry about teaming up to fight cancer. This was the start to a very rewarding part of life in business and personally for me. I rallied my whole team of reps plus the entire beauty industry to help me with a yearlong campaign to raise money for City of Hope and celebrate cures. I felt so passionate to not only raise money to help find more cures, but to also help support the families that are suffering from a loved one diagnosed with cancer. Though my passion for giving back has always been at the forefront of my focus and our company, this last year really gave me a voice to be a leader in the industry of how I truly feel and to allow me to have colleagues and competitors come together for one cause—to beat cancer. I have been so lucky through the years to be a part of great facilities, teams, campaigns, and groups where we are able to work together to make a difference. I am so proud to say in this last year we raised over $850,000 to fight cancer. It’s so rewarding to work on projects like these, and meet people who are affected and potentially saved their life with our efforts. I plan to continue my fight with rest of the industry, my TKG team and organizations I am a part of and continue to change and touch one life at a time.

How should you sell it?

This month’s focus is...

Why Choose Charity? It is easy to say that you want to help a charity, but actions truly speak louder than words. This month we have turned to an industry expert to learn why participating in philanthropy is truly worth the work.

Why does participating in charity efforts really matter, and what do you see as the biggest benefits—both personally and professionally? “If the charity efforts directly affect the neighborhoods where the OTCs are located I think it is beneficial. There are many opportunities in these neighborhoods to help the families who are customers. Some examples would be giving food baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas, donating to some facilities like parks who sponsor sports teams, donating to some of the schools in the area who have after school programs and need to give the kids snacks, or pay for young adults to be mentors or to coach and oversee sports teams, etc. While major charities are certainly very worthwhile I think the biggest benefits both personally and professionally come from participating in charitable events close to where the businesses are located. This will most likely result in appreciation from customers and can also result in better customer relations and additional business.”

어떻게 판매할 것인가? 이 달의 판매 초점은 ...

왜 자선을 선택하는가 이다? 당신이 자선 단체를 돕고 싶다고 말하는 것은 쉽지만, 행동은 진정으로 말보다 더 큰 목소리를 낸다. 이번 달에는, 자선 활동에 참여하는 일이 왜 진정으로 가치있는 일인지를 배워보기 위해 업계 전문가들과 논의했다.

자선 활동에 참여하는 것이 왜 중요한 문제이며, 당신은 이를 통해 개인적으로나 일적으로 어떤 큰 혜택을 보게 될까?

“자선 활동의 노력이 OTC 매장들이 위치한 주변 지역에 직접적으로 영향을 미칠 경우, 그것은 유익하다고 생각합니다. 주변 지역에 있는 고객들과 그 가족들을 도울 수 있는 기회는 많습니다. 예를 들어, 추수 감사절이나 크리스마스에 음식 바구니를 나눠준다든지, 스포츠팀을 후원하는 공원 등의 시설에 기부를 하거나, 방과 후 프로그램이 있어서 아이들에게 스낵을 제공해야하는 학교에 기부하거나, 혹은 스포츠팀을 감독하는 코치나 멘토가 되기 위한 청년들을 위해 돈을 지불하는 것 등이 있습니다. 주된 자선 활동이 매우 가치가 있는 동안, 당신의 비즈니스가 위치한 주변 지역의 자선 행사에 참여하는 것으로부터 당신은 개인적으로나 일적으로 아주 큰 혜택을 볼 수 있을 것이라고 생각합니다. 이것은 거의 대부분 고객들로부터 감사의 결과를 가져올 것이며 고객과의 관계나 추가적인 비지니스 면에서 보다 나은 결과를 가져올 수가 있습니다.”

Eyeliner makes a huge difference —

it can take the look of a basic eye makeup application to a look that accentuates your lashes and enriches the shape of your eye. Eyeliner can be sexy, elegant, or subtle, but it also can be harsh, overly dramatic, or sloppy—it all depends on how you apply it. The first step in choosing a liner is finding the right formula. From basic pencils to shadows, gels and liquid eyeliners, there are a bevy of beauty options depending on the look you are trying to achieve. Each has pros and cons you need to know:

Eyeliner Types

Pencil eyeliners tend to smear and smudge, unless you find a really good one that isn’t too creamy or too slick. Opt for a retractable pencil versus one that requires sharpening. After applying the pencil eyeliner, apply a small amount of eyeshadow or pressed powder over it to help keep it from smearing. Pencil eyeliners tend to have the shortest wear time, so applying powder over it can help quite a bit. Liquid eyeliner is the most dramatic and, typically, the most difficult to apply. It takes a steady hand, but it also offers the most precise and defined line. Look for liquid liner that comes with a thin, fine-point or felt-tip brush for impressive results!

Gel or cream-to-powder eyeliners offer superb application and deep color payoff. The main complaints are (1) that you have to wash the brush applicator after every use to prevent the gel or cream from hardening on the brush hairs and (2) that the look is too intense. If you don’t find those to be problems, then gel and cream eyeliners are excellent ways to go. Because they don’t smear, they are especially great for anyone with oily eyelids or for use in humid climates. Powder eyeshadow works well as eyeliner as long as you use a small, fine-tip pointed brush so you can be precise. Using powder eyeshadow as your eyeliner can achieve a softer look than you can with other types of liners. You can use the powder shadow either wet (for a more dramatic effect) or dry (for a softer look).

Choose Your Color

After finding your perfect formula, the next step is choosing the right color. One of the most beautiful things about eyeliner is how it adds depth to your lashes and makes them appear thicker. For best results, choose shades of dark brown, gray, deep plum or black for the upper lid. For the lower lash line, use a softer variation of the same shade. Stay away from brightly colored or pastel eyeliners! They tend to draw attention to the color rather than to your lashes.

How to Apply Eyeliner •

Apply eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible, and place it between each and every eyelash. It’s best to apply liner after your eyeshadow to create a defined, solid line. It’s also best to use a magnifying mirror so you can be sure you get the liner between each eyelash. This is a timeconsuming process, but the effect is sensational! If the outer corners of your eyes droop, make sure the eyeliner turns up ever-so-slightly. This will create a more youthful look that deemphasizes the downturned corners. To add drama, line the outer corner more thickly. Start with a thin line on the inner corner of the lash line and gradually make it thicker toward the back third of the lid for an attractive, classic look. Make sure that the eyeliner on the lower lash line connects with the back corner of the upper lash line. This creates a more natural, cohesive look. Apply a thin, soft line. Heavy liner on the lower lash line ends up looking like your mascara has smeared.

Play around with different textures, colors and styles to reveal your prettiest eyes. Article courtesy of You can find the article at: cosmetics-articles/main-types-of-eyeliners-and-tricks-on-how-to-apply-them-6358084.html

Knowledge to Know by Joseph Caron

곱슬 머리를 위한 딥 컨디셔닝의 기본 핵심 Deep conditioning doesn’t have to be difficult conditioning. Here 딥 컨디셔닝이 어려운 컨디셔닝일 필요는 없다. 여기 자연적인 곱슬 머 are 5 steps to help you make good decisions when deep conditioning naturally curly hair.

리를 딥 컨디셔닝할 때 당신이 좋은 결정을 내릴 수 있게 도와주는 5 가지 단계가 있다.

1. Determine your Curly Hair Care Needs Take a good look at your hair and/or see a professional stylist for a consultation to give you an honest assessment of the health of your hair. You and your stylist should then decide on some realistic goals for your hair. Deep conditioning is extra important to women who want to grow their hair longer, or fuller. Deep conditioning is also helpful to women who want to create a healthy moisture balance for the management of their curls and is absolutely essential to women with damaged hair, in need of repair.

1. 당신의 곱슬머리에 필요한 관리 방법을 결정해라. 당신의 모발 상태를 다시 확인하고/혹은 건강한 모발을 위한 솔직한 평가를 제공 받을 수 있도록 전문 스타일리스트와 상담해라. 당신과 당신의 스타일리스트는 당 신의 모발에 적합한 현실적인 목표를 결정해야 한다. 딥 컨디셔닝은 모발이 더 길 거나 풍성하게 자라길 원하는 여성들에게는 추가적으로 중요한 문제이다. 딥 컨 디셔닝은 또한 그들의 컬을 관리함에 있어 건강한 수분 발란스를 원하는 여성들 에게 도움이 되며, 손상된 모발에 보수가 필요한 여성들에게는 절대적으로 필요 한 것이다.

2. Choose your Treatment In your assessment you should have discovered if your hair is parched, dry and craving moisture. You should have also determined the strength of your hair. Based on these findings you will want to choose a product that will meet your needs. For thirsty hair, look for products with the words hydrate, moisturize, condition and humectant. Strengthening product may say reconstruct, repair, protein or keratin, among other things. It is important to maintain a healthy balance of moisture and strength. Keep a close eye on your strands to see when they need a strengthening treatment and when they need hydration treatment. 32

OTC Beauty Magazine September 2014

2. 당신에게 맞는 관리 방법을 선택해라. 모발 평가를 통해 당신의 모발이 마르고, 건조한지, 보습이 절대적으로 필요한지 를 알아내야 한다. 또한 모발의 강도를 결정해야 한다. 이렇게 알아낸 상태를 바탕 으로 당신에게 필요한 제품을 선택하고자 할 것이다. 갈증을 느끼는 모발을 위해 서는, 수분 공급, 보습, 컨디션, 그리고 습윤제라는 단어가 포함된 제품을 찾아라. 강화 제품은 복원, 보수, 프로틴, 혹은 케라틴 등의 단어들이 포함되어 있을 것이 다. 건강한 수분과 강도의 균형을 유지하는 것이 중요하다. 강화 트리트먼트가 필 요한지 보습 트리트먼트가 필요한지 유심히 살펴봐라.

K-t-K 3. Cleanse Your Hair Now you are ready to begin! Start by cleaning your hair with a safe shampoo free of harsh sulfates. For health conscious curlies, choose an organic cleanser and begin lathering your scalp and continue down throughout the hair shaft. Cleansing the hair is very important when deep conditioning as it clears your hair and raises the cuticle to allow the conditioner to penetrate your hair shaft.

3. 머리 감기 이제 시작할 준비가 되었다! 독한 황산염이 함유되지 않은 안전한 샴푸로 머리를 감는 것부터 시작해라. 건강을 생각하는 곱슬 머리를 위해서는, 유기농 클렌저를 선택하고 두피부터 거품을 내서 머리카락 아래로 내려가라. 머리를 감는 것은 모발을 깨끗이 하 고 컨디셔너가 머리카락으로 침투될 수 있도록 표피를 일으킨다는 점에서 딥 컨디셔 닝을 할 때 아주 중요하다.

4. Deep Condition with Heat or Hair Therapy Wrap For hair that is non-porous, it can be hard to get any moisture into the hair.

How to Remove Nail Polish Stains 매니큐어 얼룩 제거 방법 Old nail polish has the ability to leave a person’s nails with a stained and discolored appearance. While it is very discouraging to look at these nails when they look so awful, this situation is not impossible to correct. In fact, there are several methods to remove nail polish stains from fingernails, and nail experts suggest that those who have nail polish stains should use the method that works best for them. Bleaching One way to get rid of ugly yellow stains that have settled on nails is to use Clorox or some other type of bleach. The first step is to mix a tablespoon of bleach with a cup of water. The next step is to soak the nails in this mixture for a few minutes. The hands should then be removed from the mixture, and the nails should be scrubbed with old toothbrush. It is best to soak the nails again for another few minutes. The yellowing on the nails should be gone, but if some yellowing is still noticeable, the process may be repeated. Hydrogen Peroxide Some nail professionals recommend that clients brush away the yellow stains on nails with hydrogen peroxide. This works about the same way as the bleach solution. After soaking the nails in peroxide, it may help to brush the nails with toothpaste. Therefore, the next step is to apply toothpaste to an old toothbrush and scrub the nails until the yellow appearance is gone. 36

예전 매니큐어들은 손톱에 얼룩이나 변색을 남기곤 했다. 손톱 에 남은 흔적들을 보게되면 매우 실망스럽지만, 이런 상황을 해 결하는 것이 불가능한 것은 아니다. 사실, 손톱에 남은 매니큐 어 얼룩을 제거하는 방법에는 여러 가지가 있고, 네일 전문가들 은 매니큐어 얼룩을 가진 사람들에게 가장 효과적인 방법을 사 용할 것을 권유하고 있다. 표백 보기 흉하게 손톱에 정착된 누런색 얼룩을 제거하는 방법은 클로락스나 다른 형태의 표백제를 사용하는 것이다. 첫 번째 단계로 물 한컵과 표백 제 한 스푼을 혼합한다. 다음, 이 혼합물에 몇 분동안 손톱을 담그는 것이 다. 손을 혼합물에서 뺀 후, 손톱은 칫솔로 문질러야 한다. 몇 분 동안 여 러번 손톱을 담그는 것이 가장 좋다. 손톱의 누런색은 없어질 것이지만, 여전히 약간의 누런색이 남아있다면, 다시 한 번 과정을 반복할 수 있다. 과산화수소 일부 네일 전문가들은 고객들에게 과산화수소를 이용해서 손톱의 누런 얼룩을 제거해볼 것을 권유한다. 이것은 표백제 사용법과 같다. 과산화 수소에 손톱을 담근 후, 치솔로 손톱을 닦아주면 도움이 된다. 다음 단계 로는 치솔에 치약을 묻혀서 손톱의 누런색이 없어질 때까지 문지르는 것 이다.

How to Promote and Stimulate Natural Hair Growth 네추럴 헤어의 성장 촉진 방법 It has not been proven that any product applied externally to the hair or scalp can promote, stimulate or accelerate natural hair growth. Most people who complain of little or no hair growth are blaming it on the wrong reason. They think the problem is lack of natural growth from the scalp, when in reality the problem is the hair is breaking off from the ends for a variety of reasons. If hair growth stops baldness begins, and yet you have people complaining their hair has not grown at all over a period of years. If the person has hair, then it is growing. Once hair stops growing, it is eliminated by way of attrition. In other words, as every hair shaft dies out due to its normal life span (5-7 years), then it will not be replaced by another. Therefore, permanent baldness becomes apparent. The truth of the matter is hair grows at the same exact rate as the fingernails. And just as your fingernails break due to normal day-to-day activity and maintain only a certain length, the hair shaft does the same thing due to misuse of combing, brushing, perms, tints, relaxers, pressing and hot curling. Therefore, natural hair growth goes unnoticed. Manufacturers who identify their products with the word “GRO” are using a nonexistent word, thus sending you a subliminal message as it its ability to grow hair. However, in all fairness, these products will not harm the hair and may have some benefits, but hair growth is not one of them. The only way that a product can benefit and stimulate hair growth is if it is consumed orally and introduced into the blood stream 40

K-t-K as a vitamin. Certain vitamins that can help benefit healthy hair are available and so labeled. The root of the hair (papilla) dips into the blood stream and picks up the nutrients and supplies them through the cortex and medulla to enhance healthy hair. Hair health is promoted from within the hair shaft. Products that are applied to the outer surface of the hair are for the most part to enhance the appearance of the hair and to repair the outer surface (cuticle). Rather than buy products that claim to grow hair, invest your money in products that will reconstruct and maintain the existing hair. Then—and only then—will natural hair growth become noticeable and apparent. However, it is important to remember that any treatment designed to promote longer hair must start with a haircut because you must first eliminate the split, damaged and frizzy ends; otherwise they will continue to split down the entire hair shaft, then break off somewhere along the way. Most people who complain of lack of hair growth will not allow it to be cut because they think it is not growing. The truth of the matter is that it does not appear to grow simply because they will not allow it to be cut. Surprisingly, if you submit to the first initial cut, then continue to clip the ends every 4-6 weeks, you will notice considerably longer hair in a very short period of time.

Does the curly perm, relaxers and hair coloring help hair to grow? No. However, many curly perm customers do claim that the curl did help grow their hair. The reason for this is because the restructuring portion of the procedure relaxed out most of the kink in the hair. A hair cut is usually also a necessary step with a permanent curl to remove split ends; split ends will not curl, so they must be eliminated by cutting. This is the primary reason for noticeably healthy hair growth after a permanent curl. Another reason that people believe that curly perms, relaxers, and hair colors help to grow the hair is that with such services there is a very clear and defined line of demarcation when the new growth appears. They can now actually see the new natural growth as distinguished from the treated hair. However if they measure the length of the hair, they will discover that the hair is the same length or shorter than before—chemical services such as those mentioned above actually weaken hair, not make it stronger, so hair growth is not one of their advantages.

How Can Employees Show Customers They Care? 11 Strategies to Operationalize Caring 직원들이 고객들을 보살피고 있다는 것을 어떻게 보여줄 것인가? (부제) 보살핌을 운용화할 수 있는 11가지 전략 Caring about customers is one of the best ways to differentiate your business and gain long-term consumer loyalty. “Your best strategy is to teach your employees what caring about customers looks like in action,” says Jon Gordon. “Suggest specific tactics they can employ. When they see how good it feels to care—and how good caring is for business—you’ll receive your team’s buy-in and continued participation.” Gordon notes that most of the tips he shares can also apply internally. “Employees can apply these principles to their interactions with each other, too,” he says. “How you treat your coworkers is how you’ll treat customers—you can’t separate the two!” Here, Gordon shares 11 strategies employees can use to show customers (and each other) that they care: Be present. Most modern workers have so many responsibilities and distractions that it’s tempting to listen to clients with only one ear. Giving a client your full attention is so meaningful. Being fully present says, “I really care about you and what you need from this organization. You are my top priority right now.” Say it with a smile. Smile and be polite during all customer interactions. “Can I help you?” said with a smile has a very different effect from the same words said without one. It has been scientifically proven that the act of smiling improves your mood and can reduce stress! (Actually, a fake smile produces more stress relief. Just so you know.) Call customers by name. When interacting with a customer, ask her name— then remember it and use it. Referring to someone by name demonstrates that you see her as an individual with unique needs and preferences, as opposed to “just a number” or a source of income. 52

고객을 보살피는 것은 당신의 비즈니스를 차별화할 수 있고 장기적인 고객 충성도를 얻을 수 있는 최상의 방법 중 하나이다. “당신의 최고의 전략은 직원들이 고객을 행동으로 보살필 수 있도록 가르치는 것입니다.” Jon Gordon이 말한다. “그들이 이용할 수 있는 특정한 전술을 제안하세요. 보살핌을 받는다는 느낌이 얼마나 좋은 것인지 – 보살핌이 비즈니스를 위해서 얼마나 좋은 것인지- 그들이 보게 될 때, 당신의 팀은 그것에 동의하며 지속적으로 동참하게 될 것입니다.” Gordon은 공유할 수 있는 대부분의 조언들은 내부적으로 적용할 수 있다고 지적한다. “직원들은 이러한 이론을 서로간의 상호 작용에도 또한 적용할 수 있습니다.” 그가 말하기를, “당신이 동료를 대하는 방법이 바로 당신이 고객을 대하는 방법일 것입니다. – 이 둘을 분리할 수는 없습니다!” 여기에서, Gordon은 직원들이 고객들에게 (또 서로간에) 그들이 보살피고 있음을 보여줄 수 있는 11가지 전략들을 공유하고 있다: 존재하라. 오늘날 대부분의 노동자들은 고객의 소리를 단지 한 쪽 귀로 듣는 유혹에 빠질만큼 너무도 많은 책임과 방해 요소들을 갖고 있다. 고객들에게 당신의 모든 관심과 집중을 제공하는 것은 아주 의미가 있다. 완전하게 존재한다는 것은, “나는 당신과 당신이 이 곳에서 원하는 것에 진정으로 관심을 갖고 있습니다. 당신은 바로 지금 나의 최우선입니다.” 라는 말인 것이다. 웃으면서 얘기해라. 모든 고객과의 상호 관계에서는 웃으면서 예의를 갖추라. 웃으면서 건네는 “도와드릴까요?” 이 한마디는 같은 말이라도 웃음이 없을 때와는 전혀 다른 효과를 만든다. 웃음의 작용이 당신의 기분을 향상시키고 스트레스를 낮춘다는 것은 과학적으로도 증명되었다! (사실상, 거짓 웃음이 더욱 많은 스트레스 완화를 생성한다.) 고객의 이름을 불러라. 고객과의 상호 작용 시, 그들의 이름을 물어봐라 – 그리고 기억하고 사용해라. 누군가를 이름으로 주목한다는 것은 당신이 그들을 고유한 요구나 선호 사항을 가진 한 개인으로 보는 것임을

입증하는 것으로, “단지 숫자” 나 소득의 원천과는 상반되는 의미인 것이다.

Extend a genuine offer to help (but don’t hover). It’s true; no one appreciates “that” salesperson who shadows your every step as you browse through a store, asking you every two minutes if you need help. But that doesn’t mean a single, simple, heartfelt, “Please let me know if you have any questions or need any help while you’re here” won’t be appreciated. It will! Even if a customer knows exactly what she wants, where to find it, and how to use it, the fact that you noticed her and offered your assistance will make a positive impression and send a powerful message about your company. Be generous with your time. When someone does have a question or requests help, don’t rush through the task of explaining your company’s policy or toss off a piece of canned advice—take your time and really help the customer. It’s a conversation, not a lecture. Gordon suggests you ask questions and listen to your customers. This lets them know you care about them and their thoughts, and it helps you to better understand their concerns so you can help them. Stay calm and respectful at all times. (Resist the temptation to get defensive.) Sometimes it’s easier said than done, but you should always strive to treat customers with respect. Often when a customer is upset, or perhaps even hostile, using soothing words that show you care can have a powerful calming effect. Respond quickly and touch base often. It’s simple: Return calls and emails promptly. Whenever possible, try not to leave any unanswered emails or voicemails overnight. And be proactive with updates, too. Build it up. There is no such thing as a “perfect” job. Every employee in every industry has the occasional complaint about work, but that doesn’t mean you should dwell on them or air them gratuitously. When you’re talking about your company (especially if you’re on the clock), try to stay positive. “Negative chit-chat damages a brand and may send an undeservedly negative impression about it to others,” Gordon points out. “If you care about your organization, help build it up. If you don’t care, it’s time for an honest selfevaluation or a new job.” See the good. In Gordon’s book, the carpenter tells his protégé, “When you see the good, look for the good, and expect the good, you find the good and the good finds you.” You can apply this principle by making an effort to stop thinking of customers as “annoying,” “needy,” “clueless,” or “a waste of my time.” Instead, choose to see the good in them; for example, thinking “She is genuinely curious about how this product is manufactured.” Customers will notice and appreciate the change in your attitude. Don’t make it all about business. During any prolonged or follow-up interaction with a customer, ask them, “How are you doing?” Make an effort to learn about return clients on a personal level as well as a professional one, and follow up on what you discover. Always go the extra mile. Constantly look for ways to make the service you provide just a little bit better. Gordon points out that even one percent more time, energy, or thought can make a big difference. Even small actions (like walking a customer to the door after checking them out) mean a lot. “Caring as a success strategy works only when all of your employees are on board. Think about it: It takes only one dismissive salesperson or rude customer service rep to drive a client away. And you can bet that client will spread the story of how poorly he or she was treated by your company!”

도움이 되는 진심어린 제안을 확대해라. (그러나 단지 주위를 맴돌지는 말아라.) 사실이다. 당신이 매장을 둘러보는 내내 그림자처럼 따라다니면서, 2분마다 도움이 필요하냐고 묻는 판매직원에게는 누구도 고마워하지 않는다. 그것은 단지 단순한 진심을 의미하지 않는다. “당신이 이곳에 있는 동안 도움이 필요한지 어떤 질문이 있는지 제발 알려주세요.” 라는 식은 전혀 고맙게 느껴지지 않는다. 고객이 자신이 원하는 것을 정확히 알고, 그것이 어디에 위치하는지, 또 어떻게 사용하는지를 다 알고 있다고 해도, 당신이 고객을 인식하고 도움을 제공했다는 사실은 긍정적인 인상을 만들고 당신의 회사에 대한 강한 메세지를 보내게 될 것이다. 당신의 시간에 관대해라. 누군가 질문이 있거나 도움을 요청할 때, 회사 규정을 설명하는 직무나 정형화된 조언을 던지는데 급급해하지 말아라 – 시간을 갖고 진정으로 고객을 도와라. 그것은 강의가 아니라 대화이다. Gordon은 고객에게 질문하고 그들의 말을 들으라고 제안한다. 이것은 당신이 그들과 그들의 생각을 보살피고 있음을 그들에게 알게하는 것이며, 당신이 보다 더 그들의 관심을 이해하고 잘 도울 수 있게 한다. 항상 조용하고 정중이 있어라. (방어적이 되려는 유혹에 저항해라.) 때때로 이렇게 말하기는 쉽지만 행동하기는 어렵다. 그러나 항상 고객을 존중하며 대하도록 노력해야 한다. 종종 고객들이 화가 났을 때나 혹은 적대적이 될 때, 당신이 보살피고 있음을 보여줄 수 있는 부드러운 단어를 사용하는 것이 강력한 진정 효과를 갖는다. 신속하게 대응하고 자주 연락해라. 간단하다. 신속하게 전화나 이메일로 응답해라. 가능하다면, 밤새 대답하지 않은 이메일이나 음성 메일을 남겨두지 말아라. 또한 적극적으로 업데이트해라. 증강시켜라. “완벽한” 작업같은 건 없다. 모든 분야의 모든 직원들은 일에 대해 가끔 불만을 갖지만, 당신이 거기에 연연하거나 불필요할 만큼 언급해야한다는 뜻은 아니다. 당신의 회사에 관해 얘기할 때(특히 업무중이라면), 긍정적인 태도를 유지하도록 애써라. “부정적인 잡담은 브랜드에 손상을 주며 다른 사람들에게 그것에 대해 부당한 부정적 인상을 전달할 수가 있습니다.” Gordon은 지적한다. “당신의 조직에 신경을 쓰고 있다면, 그 조직이 힘을 구축하고 증강할 수 있도록 도우세요. 만일 자신이 몸 담고 있는 조직에 크게 신경을 쓰지 않고 있다면, 정직하게 스스로를 평가하거나 새로운 직장을 찾아야할 때입니다.” 좋은 것을 봐라. Gordon의 책에 따르면, 목수가 자신의 후배에게 이렇게 말한다, “자네가 좋은 것을 보고, 좋은 것을 찾고, 그리고 좋은 것을 기대한다면, 자네는 좋은 것을 찾게 될 것이며 그 좋은 것이 자네를 찾게 될걸세.” 고객들을 “성가시고,” “궁핍하고”, “멍청하고”, 혹은 “당신의 시간 낭비”로 생각하지 않도록 노력하는데 당신은 이 원칙을 적용할 수 있다. 대신, 그 중에 좋은 것을 볼 수 있도록 선택해라. 예를 들어, “그녀는 이 제품의 제조 방법에 대해 정말로 궁금해 할거야.” 라고 생각해 봐라. 고객들은 당신의 변화된 태도를 인지하고 고마워할 것이다. 모든 것을 비즈니스로만 만들지는 말아라. 고객들과의 어떤 장기적 혹은 후속 상호 관계를 유지하는 동안, “어떻게 지내세요?” 라고도 물어봐라. 업무적 단계뿐 아니라 개인적인 차원에서도 고객들에게 관심을 갖도록 노력해라. 그리고 당신이 그들에 관해 알게 된 것에 관심을 가져라. 항상 조금 더 나아가라. 당신이 제공하는 서비스를 조금 더 낫게할 수 있는 방법을 지속적으로 찾아라. Gordon은 단 1% 더 많은 시간과 에너지, 생각이 큰 변화를 만들 수 있다고 지적한다. 심지어 사소한 행동들(계산을 마친 고객들을 문 앞까지 배웅하는 것처럼)도 큰 의미를 부여한다. “성공적인 전략으로서의 보살핌은 모든 당신의 직원들이 함께 실행할 때에만 작용합니다. 생각해 보세요: 고객을 달아나게 하는데는 고객을 무시하는 단 한 명의 판매직원이나 무례한 고객 서비스 직원이면 충분합니다. 그리고 그 고객이 당신의 회사가 자신을 얼마나 형편없이 대했는지를 여기 저기 얘기할 것이라는 것은 너무도 당연한 일이죠!”

Why Happiness Matters 행복이 중요한 이유


OTC Beauty Magazine September 2014

Although some would have you think otherwise, the uniquely human pursuit of happiness is not merely some frivolous idle-time activity for the fortunate few. Instead, it is a serious pursuit—a duty and responsibility for each of us. As the progress—or lack thereof—of human progress has demonstrated, being in a positive, optimistic and happy frame of mind seems to be what allows some humans to be more successful than others in obtaining life’s essentials: food, shelter, social support, and even a mate. So it has always been and so it continues today. If you still doubt the seriousness of pursuing a happier life, consider your loved ones; fulfilling the duty of being happy benefits not just yourself, but also those closest to you.

당신은 그렇게 생각하지 않을 수도 있지만, 인간의 고유한 행복 추구는

The Benefits Most of the benefits of living a happier life are familiar, yet they are powerful and seemingly endless—and they far outweigh the costs and work needed to achieve this state. Nonetheless, many in our societies often try to diminish the idea of simple, lasting happiness, instead extolling the thrill of peak pleasures and magnificent accomplishments. As a rejoinder to them and a reminder to us all, here is a consensus of what researchers around the world have proven to result from simply being happy, especially when compared to unhappy, sad or depressed people:


• Success. Overall, happy people are more successful across multiple major domains of life including work, social relationships, income, and health. In addition, the relationship between happiness and success seems to be reciprocal: not only can individual success—whether in love or at work—contribute to feelings of happiness, but happiness also results in more success. In this way, happiness becomes an even more worthwhile pursuit, both as a desirable end in and of itself and as a means to achieve other significant life goals. • Personally. Happy people more frequently exhibit characteristics such as being strikingly energetic, decisive, and flexible. They are more creative, more helpful to those in need, more self-confident, more forgiving, more charitable, more sociable, and more loving. Compared to unhappy people, happier people are more trusting, more loving, and more responsive. They have greater self-control, can tolerate frustration better, are less likely to be abusive, are more lenient, and demonstrate enhanced coping skills.

단지 몇 가지 행운에 대한 사소한 유휴 시간 활동만은 아니다. 대신, 그것은 진지한 추구 – 우리 각자를 위한 의무와 책임 – 인 것이다.

인간의 진보 – 혹은 그것의 부족함이 입증됨에 따라, 마음의

긍정이나 낙관, 행복의 틀은 인생의 필수 조건을 성취하는데 있어서 어떤 사람이 다른 사람보다 더욱 성공하기 위해 허용되는 것처럼 보인다. 음식, 쉼터, 사회 지원, 심지어 동료. 그것은 언제나 그래왔고 지금도 계속되고 있다. 만일 당신이 여전히 더욱 행복한 삶의 추구를 위한 진지함을 의심한다면, 당신이 사랑하는 것을 생각해봐라. 행복을 위한 의무를 이행하는 것은 당신 자신뿐 아니라, 당신과 가장 가까운 사람에게도 혜택을 준다.

행복한 삶의 장점 중 대부분은 우리가 잘 알고 있는데, 그것들은 강력하고 끝이 없어 보인다 – 그리고 그것은 지금까지 이 상태를 달성하는데 필요한 비용과 작업보다 훨씬 무겁다. 그럼에도 불구하고, 우리 사회의 많은 사람들은 종종 거대한 성과와 즐거움이 절정일 때의 흥분을 극찬하는 대신, 단순하고, 지속적인 행복에 관한 생각을 축소시키려 애쓴다. 그것에 대한 답변과 우리 모두를 상기기키기 위해서, 여기 전 세계의 연구자들이 동의한 내용을 제시한다. 이것은 단순한 행복을 특히 불행이나 슬픔, 혹은 우울한 사람들과 비교했을 때의 결과로 입증된 것이다: • 성공. 전반적으로, 행복한 사람들은 직장, 사회적 관계, 소득, 건강을 포함한 삶의 여러 주요 영역에서 더욱 성공적이다. 또한, 행복과 성공의 관계는 상호적인 것처럼 보인다: 개인적인 성공이 – 일이든 사랑이든 – 행복한 감정에 기여할 뿐 아니라, 행복은 더 큰 성공을 가져온다. 이런 방식으로, 행복은 더욱 바람직한 추구의 대상이 된다, 그 자체로서 바람직한 끝인 동시에 다른 중요한 인생의 목표를 추구한다는 의미로서도. • 개인적으로. 행복한 사람들은 현저히 에너지가 넘치고 결단력 있으며, 유연한 특성을 가지고 있다. 그들은 보다 창의적이며 다른 사람들을 더 많이 돕고, 더 큰 자신감과 관대함을 가지는 것은 물론, 더욱 남을 돕고 사교적이며 더 많은 사랑을 갖고 있다. 불행한 사람들과 비교한다면, 행복한 사람일수록 더 신뢰하고 사랑하며 더 많이 호응한다. 그들은 더 큰 자기 통제 능력을 갖고 있으며, 좌절감을 더욱 잘 견디며, 훨씬 덜 가학적이며, 또한 더욱 관대하며 강화된 대응 방법을 보여준다.

• Socially. Happy people have more friends, richer social interactions, correspondingly stronger social support, and experience longer and more satisfying marriages. • Work. In addition to bringing all their positive personal attributes to work, happy people have been proven to be more likely to perform better, achieve greater productivity and deliver a higher quality work product. They tend to receive a higher income as a result. • Physical health. Happy people experience less pain, are often in better health, are more active with more energy and even, not surprisingly, live longer. They have lower stress levels and stronger immune systems that fight disease more effectively. By comparison, stressed and depressed people are more vulnerable to various illnesses.

• 사회적으로, 행복한 사람들은 많은 친구들과, 풍부한 사회 상호작용, 상대적으로 더욱 강한 사회적 지지, 그리고 보다 길고 만족스러운 결혼 생활을 경험한다.

• 일. 행복한 사람들은 자신의 모든 긍정적인 개인적 자질을 일에 모두 쏟아부을 뿐 아니라, 업무를 더욱 잘 수행하며, 더 큰 생산성을 달성하고 우수한 작업 결과물을 만들어내는 것으로 입증되고 있다. 결과적으로 더 높은 수입을 얻는 경향이 있다. • 육체적 건강. 행복한 사람은 통증을 적게 경험하며, 종종 더 건강하고, 더 많은 에너지로 활동적이며, 놀라울 것 없이 더욱 오래 산다. 그들은 낮은 스트레스 레벨과 보다 효과적으로 질병과 싸울

• Mental health. Happy individuals construe daily situations and major life events in relatively more positive and more adaptive ways

수 있는 강한 면역 체계를 갖고 있다. 비교해보면, 스트레스가 많고 우울한 사람들은 다양한 질병에 더욱 취약하다. September 2014 OTC Beauty Magazine


that seem to reinforce their happiness. They are also less likely to exaggerate any criticism, however slight, that they may receive, as opposed to unhappy individuals who react to life experiences in negative ways that only reinforce their unhappiness. What’s at Stake Take your pursuit of a happier and more fulfilling life seriously—it is a worthy goal especially in times of uncertainty and strife. Your success in striving to thrive is a precious gift that benefits not only yourself but also all those around you as well as the world at large—benefits that can’t be overestimated. Trust and believe that you are worthy enough to prioritize and focus your time and energy on living a happier life. First and foremost, you owe it to yourself to try to be as happy as you can. You also owe it to those around you: your spouse, your parents, your children, your friends and acquaintances, and coworkers and colleagues. If you question or doubt the seriousness of this pursuit or tend to trivialize the value of being happier, just ask any spouse or significant other what it’s like to live with an unhappy and unfulfilled partner. Ask a parent about the pain suffered by all if a child is unhappy. Or ask a child what it’s like to be raised by an unhappy, unfulfilled, angry, and bitter parent. Ask a supervisor what it’s like to try to work with unhappy, frustrated, and unmotivated employees. Then ask a worker about working for an unhappy manager. Think carefully about the impact of choosing to live a happier life. Realize that because happiness has been demonstrated to be contagious, your individual happiness can affect not only you and those closest to you, but also those living nearby. Individual happiness matters much more—and can have a much more extensive impact—than ever realized before. Finally, recall your childhood: groups of young children playing together, exploring, curious about everything, giggling in wide-eyed wonderment. Compare that picture to a group of typical adults commuting in cars or trains or buses or subways: dull faces gazing unseeingly straight ahead, emotionless. What have they lost? When did they lose it? And can they get it back? Remember that one day you will be sitting on that proverbial rocking chair on some front porch or veranda, maybe overlooking the ocean, and a stranger will sit down beside you and politely ask: “So, what did you do in your life?” What will you say? The stakes are high. The price of unhappiness is steep. And life is short.

• 정신 건강. 행복한 개인은 자신의 행복을 강화할 수 있는 상대적으로 더욱 긍정적이고 적응력이 높은 방법으로 매일의 상황이나 인생의 중요한 이벤트를 해석한다. 그들은 또한 자신들이 받을 수 있는 어떤 비판을 과장할 가능성이 적은데, 이것은 자신의 불행을 단지 강화하는 부정적인 방법으로 인생의 경험에 반응하는 불행한 사람들과는 반대의 모습이다. 성패는 어디에 달려 있는가? 더욱 행복하고 만족스러운 인생을 진지하게 추구해라. – 그것은 불확실한 투쟁의 시간에서 특히 가치있는 목표이다. 번창하기 위해 고군분투하면서 얻은 당신의 성공은 당신 자신 뿐 아니라 당신을 둘러싼 많은 사람들, 넓게는 이 세상에 혜택을 주는 귀중한 선물이 된다. – 그리고 그 혜택은 절대 과대평가될 수 없는 것이다.

당신은 보다 행복한 삶을 살 수 있는 당신의 에너지와

시간을 우선으로 하고 거기에 집중하기에 충분히 가치가 있다는 것을 신뢰하고 믿어야 한다. 무엇보다도, 당신 스스로 할 수있는 한 행복해지기 위해 노력해야한다. 또한 당신의 주위 사람들: 배우자, 부모, 자녀, 친구들과 지인들, 그리고 동료와 동창들을 위해서도 노력해야 한다. 만일 당신이 이러한 추구의 진지함에 의문이나 의심이 생긴다면, 혹은 행복의 가치를 하찮게 여긴다면, 불행하고 성취감없는 파트너와 살고 있는 다른 사람들이나 그들의 배우자에게 물어봐라. 자녀가 행복하지 않음으로 고통 받는 부모에게 물어봐라. 혹은 불행하고, 성취감 없고, 성난 부모와 살아온 아이들에게 물어봐라. 불행하고, 불만스러워하며 동기부여가 되지 않은 직원들과 함께 일하는 직장 상사에게 물어봐라. 그리고 불행한 매니저와 함께 일하느라 애쓰는 직원에게 물어봐라. 행복한 삶을 선택할 수 있는 영향에 대해 신중히 생각해 봐라. 행복은 전염된다는 것이 입증되었으므로, 당신의 개인적 행복은 당신 자신과 주위 사람들 뿐 아니라, 가까운 사람들에게도 영향을 미칠 수 있다는 것을 인식해라. 개인의 행복은 – 이전에 깨달은 것보다 - 훨씬 더 중요하며 , 더 광범위한 영향을 줄 수 있다.

마지막으로, 어린 시절을 회상에 봐라: 여러 명의 아이들이

함께 놀고, 탐구하고, 모든 것에 호기심을 갖고, 큰 눈을 굴리며 즐겁게 웃는 모습을 떠올려 봐라. 자동차나 기차, 혹은 버스나 지하철로 통근하는 전형적인 한 무리의 성인들과 그 그림을 비교해 봐라. 초점없이 앞만 쳐다보고 있는 감정없이 무뎌진 얼굴. 그들이 잃은 것은 무엇인가? 그들은 언제 그것을 잃어버렸을까? 다시 찾을 수는 있을까?

언젠가 당신은 현관이나 베란다에 놓인 속담에도 나오는

흔들 의자에 앉아 있게 될 것임을 기억해라. 어쩌면 바다를 바라보고 있을 수도 있겠다. 그러면 낯선 이가 당신 옆으로 다가와 정중히 물을 것이다. “그래서, 당신은 그동안 무엇을 했습니까?” 당신은 뭐라고 말할것인가?

The Winds of Change:

The Professional Products Unlimited Inc. Brand Acquisition The winds of change are blowing in for Professional Products Unlimited, Inc. At the time of press, the newness of nature and crisp air of autumn would be well underway. For over 30 year, I have been making an indelible mark on the ethnic hair care business and this summer I have decided to embark on a whole new journey. After much consideration and care I have decided to sell all of my hair care brands. Now I suspect that by this time, the business of health and beauty will be buzzing a bit with the news of the acquisition, so I want to be sure and let all of our supporters and valued customers know the true facts of the sale. As of July 1st 2014, Universal Beauty Products, Inc. completed the full acquisition of several brands from Professional Products Unlimited, Inc. Universal will now manufacture, distribute and market the powerhouse brands Jamaican Mango & Lime, Jamaican Mango & Lime Black Castor Oil, Groganics DHT Blocker System, III Sisters of Nature, Robert’s Diamond Bond, Love My Baby and Salon Finish worldwide. This may come as a surprise to many, but please let me be the first to tell you that we have been truly elated at Professional Products Unlimited, Inc. We were not under any financial strain and our brands have been producing better than ever. So unfortunately, there is no juicy drama behind the sale. It was simpler than that. A wise man once told me, “Don’t play the song until the curtains go down. Give the audience the best that you got and leaving ready for more.” I have been in the business a long time and I want to have a chance to sit back and enjoy the legacy that I have made while continuing to give to the industry that I love so much. Though I have sold my brands, I have entered into a deal that will ensure that all of the brands will continue to grow and our dedication to customer service and quality live on. Universal Beauty Products, Inc. is a dynamic firm with several thriving brands on their roster that include top hair care industry contenders such as My DNA, VIA Naturals and Salon Pro. The acquisition took place at Professional Products Unlimited, Inc.’s offices. I have made certain the brands are going to a truly outstanding company that shares our same beliefs in the business. Please rest assured that though it was a difficult decision, it was one that our entire company was truly pleased with. We all had an

aura of celebration instead of loss and look proudly to the road before us. Both companies came together on that faithful day and there was an air of comradery and celebration as the president of Universal Beauty Products, Inc., Yong Park, and I put pen to paper, shook hands and made a toast to the deal. Professional Products Unlimited, Inc. and Universal Beauty Products, Inc. are two companies that have been founded and forged on similar ideals. As you all know, Professional Products was a pioneer in the ethnic hair care category formulating products for natural ethnic hair types for over 17 years. We pioneered the natural hair care category. In my eyes the basis for the acquisition became a natural fit once we had our first meeting. I believe that the acquisition of the Professional Products Unlimited brands by Universal Beauty Products, Inc. is a truly exciting event for the hair care industry as a whole. Universal Beauty continues to be a leader in bringing new innovative products to the market that not only support the latest trend, they create them, like their Salon Pro brands for weaves and extensions that are in high demand all of the globe. They were also one of the first hair care companies to embrace the development of naturally formulated hair care products like their VIA Naturals hair coloring line. It will be interesting to see the new developments from the brands in the years to come. One aspect that we can all be certain of is the potential for Universal Beauty Products, Inc. to take their newly purchased brands out of this world and beyond. The future of Professional Products as a company has never been more secure as we are now concentrating on another arm of our operations—contract manufacturing. Professional Products has been a full service private label manufacturer for over 10 years. I have more knowledge, forethought and experience in this business than I can began to describe and I intend to be a driving force and example to new companies that have started from the ground up just as I did. We currently make a number of successful health and beauty brands and we are adding more on every day. We hope to be a beacon of light for entrepreneurs that think outside of the box in health and beauty. So as always, Professional Products will strive to bring consumers the quality and products that they demand and deserve.

Philanthropic Public Spirits From an Industry Giant to a New Progressive When one thinks of the beauty industry words like benevolence, humanitarianism and social conscience are not typically top-of-mind words. At the core of the industry are businesses rooted in products that create outer beauty for physical attractiveness. Inner beauty, rooted in the hearts’ spirit is often overlooked in the beauty industry and our culture today. Albeit, there are change agents in the industry working to bridge outer beauty with inner beauty through philanthropic efforts to promote social causes that impact our community and culture. Meet two corporate change agents from polar fiscal positions giving back; an established hair care industry giant and the other a new and progressive feminine hygiene company. Though they are at different points and levels, both lead from the inside out, finding the time, energy and resources to drive social responsibility, cultural benevolence and public-spiritedness.


“Our company develops and distributes (hair care products) for women, and we want to care for them in our community. Often, women put their needs last, and through our events we want to let these women know that they are a priority as well. African Pride believes that no woman is monolithic in nature and celebrates individual beauty from the inside out.” – Charlene Dance, Director of Marketing for Strength of Nature Company: Strength of Nature/African Pride Product(s): Hair Care for Women and Girls Cause Tags: Women, Breast Cancer and Children’s Shelters Website/City:, GA Which charity have you partnered with? African Pride partners with Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Circle of Promise through Ebony Steele’s (Dish Nation TV, former co­host of the Rickey Smiley Morning Show) “Bare Chest for Breast Cancer” fundraiser event. We’ve also created our own initiatives like the “Stories of Strength” Series where breast cancer survivors and their empowering stories are featured on the African Pride social media platforms during breast cancer awareness month. African Pride has also hosted pamper and makeover parties like 66

OTC Beauty Magazine September 2014

“Transformation 2013: A Brand New You,” serving over 250 women through partnerships with women and children’s shelters like My Sister’s House, a crisis emergency shelter and residential recovery program. Why did you partner with this organization? African Pride partners with organizations that embody the mission and ideals of the brand. Why is this cause important to your business? Believing in the wholeness of the woman, African Pride promotes initiatives like breast cancer awareness and helping those in shelters to encourage women to be proactive when it comes to their health and to embrace their beauty from the inside out, despite the circumstance. What standard of value is created through this charity partnership? African Pride strongly believes in setting a standard of corporate social responsibility. We are excited to have the opportunity to support initiatives that matter to our employees and consumers, and align with the company’s mission.

Why do you think it is important for other beauty corporations to get involved in philanthropic efforts? Corporations across all industries should participate in initiatives that benefit the local communities of their businesses and afar because it creates a unique and invaluable point­of­touch with your consumers. Helping the women that live in the communities where our products are sold is priceless. It’s something you can’t put a price tag on. We see it as added value for our company to get out into our communities and be face-to-face with the consumer so they know that we care. We realize that without their ongoing support Strength of Nature wouldn’t be possible and it’s great that we get to show them through initiatives that are tied to health. How does supporting charitable efforts support your business? It supports our corporate mission to have extensive and responsive community outreach programs that support the growth and awareness of civic outreach centers, churches, salons, and hair schools. What’s the best part of partnering with this organization? Being able to hear and share the stories of the survivors and women in midst of their journey through other challenges is an honor. Their energy towards life is contagious and their will to fight and overcome their circumstance is empowering.


“I’m on a powerful mission to encourage women and girls to love themselves. We leverage our company, The Honey Pot, to encourage love with clean, healthy and happy honey pots, one bottle at a time.” – Beatrice Dixon, Vaginal Health Enthusiast, CEO & Founder of The Happy Root LLC Company: The Happy Root LLC/The Honey Pot Product: 100% Natural Plant-Based Feminine Wash Cause Tags: Women, Vaginal Health, HIV/Aids Prevention, Reproductive Challenges Website/City:, GA Which charity have you partnered with? We’ve partnered with Sister Love Inc. dedicated to eradicating the adverse impact of HIV/AIDS and other reproductive/vaginal health challenges upon women and their families through education, prevention, support and human rights advocacy in the United States and around the world. Our product helps stop yeast infections, deliver pH balance and support vaginal immunity. About 75 percent of women have at least one yeast infection during their lives. And almost half of women have two or more vaginal yeast infections. Why this partnership? We know that women with HIV/AIDS often have recurring yeast infections and with the work Sister Love has been doing for the last 25 years, we knew this was a good fit for our brand. The Honey Pot partners with organizations that are close to our cause and brand mission. Why is this cause important your business? The feminine hygiene industry is a $12 million dollar industry. Women create wealth for beauty corporations as a business in the industry, and we must create social wealth and stability for the women in our community. Our goal is to create a paradigm shift in the minds of women and girls. When a woman takes pride in her body she’s less likely to exhibit risky behavior that lead to sexually transmitted diseases. At the Honey Pot we want to take a stand for women and girls and encourage them to love themselves and their honey pots more.

What standard of value is created through this charity partnership? The Honey Pot seeks to create a value of trust and reciprocity. Trusted products, trusted consumers, and trusted corporate action to support women. We want to create a cultural standard that resonates throughout the industry, and more importantly with our consumers. We want women to know that we understand their plights and we seek to elevate their consciousness surrounding their health. Why do you think it is important for other beauty corporations to get involved in philanthropic efforts? All corporations should get involved in charity initiatives. We view philanthropic relationships as more than a corporate/social responsibility, it’s our human responsibility to serve a purpose and help others. We’re a growing business and we began our company in philanthropic partnership because we see it as a requirement, particularly in the beauty industry. So much of the beauty business is about the physical, instant gratification. We wanted to add purpose and value to our business of helping and healing and be an actionable example to both the industry and our consumers. Our product is made for women so it is remiss for any company to not support the women or audience that they ask to support their brand. What kind of events or partnerships do you participate in with this organization? Women-centric initiatives are our focus. We’ve partnered with Sister Love through Pop-Up event(s) to help raise funds and we develop a digital and social media overlay for awareness that transcends ethnicity and age. In 2015 we’ll broaden our discourse with a series campaign tour and other womenfocused relationships. How does supporting charitable efforts support your business? Women feel invested in our charity and because we are genuinely invested in women, we don’t just talk about it; we show it by our partnerships and efforts to raise awareness and money. The ROI is intangible. What’s the best part of partnering with this organization? In encouraging women to love themselves, we’re helping women and girls choose a better life, a different consciousness about her body and paradigm shift in her thinking and behavior pattern that could save her life. That’s empowering for us, one honey pot at a time!

Once you see these it is hard to not tell others about them so you can all bask in that joy. The same is true about the charity efforts of the people and companies within the beauty industry.

We all know how tough it can be to make your mark in this world, and they strive to make that journey a little easier. As a part of this program they held their Wella Supports Your Cause Charity Challenge to help hairdressers and salon owners amplify their contributions to charity within their local communities—whether big or small. The competition garnered hundreds of entries from across North America. Participants submitted videos and essays that revealed their passion and actionable efforts toward causes such as heart disease research, domestic abuse shelter and autism awareness. Finalists were chosen by a combination of online public voting and a judging panel of industry experts. Kelly H. was named the Grand Prize Winner, and as such will receive a $10,000 grant for her compelling dedication to community outreach programs that reach over 17,000 patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments through the “Chemo Buddies” platform. In addition to the grand prize, Wella will award 19 other challenge finalists grants as well.

Conair® Corporation is proud to partner with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® in their mission to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. By providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide and increasing public awareness about good breast health, a cure cannot be far away.

Andis spreads their charitable support far and wide

ndis truly is a company with a generous spirit. Participating in numerous philanthropic efforts, they stay busy helping others. Last year, Andis associates surpassed their recently set record for raising money for the United Way of Racine County. They also sponsored the Junior Showmanship Competition during the 21st Anniversary World Beef Expo at the Wisconsin State Fair Park. Youth competed by presenting their animals in 21 categories and the winners of each age group—whose heifers best represented breed standards—received Andis’ AGC Super 2-Speed Clipper for large animals. They also supported the youth competitors from organizations such as 4-H, Future Farmers of America and the ASPCA by reaching out to both home and professional animal groomers (through their Hearts & Paws contest) in the past. Other notable charitable events they help with include St. Baldrick’s, Relay for Life, the Susan Komen Foundation, the Nature Conservancy, Pet Smart Charities, the City of Hope Foundation, and the Racine, Waukesha and Wisconsin State Fair. Having been very active in Racine County, WI for more than 90 years, Andis donates to numerous churches, schools and community organizations.

작년, Andis는United Way of Racine County를 위한

모금에서 최근 그들이 목표로 한 기록을 넘어 섰다. 그들은 또한 Wisconsin State Fair Park 에서 21st Anniversary World Beef Expo가 열리는 동안 the Junior Showmanship Competition을 후원했다. 청소년들은 21개 분야에서 자신들의 동물을 데리고 경쟁을 벌였으며 각 연령 그룹별로 최고의 품종 기준에 해당하는 어린 암소를 데리고 온 청소년이 승자가 되었고, 가장 큰 동물을 위해서 Andis의 AGC Super 2-Speed 클리퍼를 받았다.

또한4-H, Future Farmers of America, ASPCA와 같은

단체로부터 과거에 집에서나 직업적으로 동물 그루머(그들의 Hearts & Paws컨테스트를 통해)였던 사람들에게도 관심을 가지면서, 청소년 참가자들을 지원했다.

주목할 만한 또 다른 자선 이벤트로, 그들은St. Baldrick’s,

Relay for Life, the Susan Komen Foundation, the Nature Conservancy, Pet Smart Charities, the City of Hope Foundation, and the Racine, Waukesha and Wisconsin State Fair를 돕고 있다. 90년이 넘도록 위스콘신의Racine 카운티에서 아주 활발하게 활동하면서, Andis는 수많은 교회와 학교 그리고 지역 단체에 기부하고 있다. September 2014 OTC Beauty Magazine

나서는 만져만 봐도 좋은 머리인지 나쁜 머리인지, 섞인 머리 인지를 구별할 수 있게 되었습니다”. 많은 뷰티 서플라이 오 너들이 뷰티에 대해 어느 정도 사전 지식을 가지고 뛰어드는 것이 보통이다. 하지만, 이사장처럼 전혀 지식이 없는 사람들 이 처음엔 많은 고생을 하겠지만, 스스로 공부하는 좋은 습관 이 남아, 계속해서 쏟아지는 새로운 제품들도 꾸준히 공부하 는 장점이 되기도 한다. 98년도에 2,400 sq ft 로 시작하여, 2년뒤 현재 이사장의 아내 가 운영하고 있는 스토어를 하나 더 오픈 하였으며, 6년전엔 첫 번째 스토어를 3,600 sq ft 의 규모로 늘리게 되었다고 한 다. “지역의 특성상 2,400 sq ft 로도 이미 판매는 최대를 찍었 다고 생각을 하였는데, 스토어 사이즈를 늘인 이유는 오로지 스토어를 방문한 손님들을 위한 것이었습니다” 라고 이사장은 말한다. 보통 스토어 사이즈를 늘이는 이유는 좀더 많은 제품 들을 구비해 놓기 위해서이다. 하지만 이사장은 선반 사이를 비좁아서 힘들게 지나가는 손님들을 보고 스토어 공간을 늘렸 다고 한다. “물론, 제품을 좀더 가져다 두기는 하였지만, 매상 에는 그리 큰 차이가 없었습니다. 하지만, 고객들에게 좀더 편 한 쇼핑환경을 만들어 준 것이 비즈니스에 많은 긍정적인 영향 을 줬다는 것에는 확신을 하고 있습니다” 스토어를 늘려 랜트 를 더 많이 내게 되면, 그만큼 감세가 되기 마련이다. “정부에 더 많은 세금을 내느니, 그 세금을 저희 손님들에게 좀더 투자 하는 것이 낫다는 생각도 하였습니다” 라고 이사장은 말한다. “스토어 내의 제품을 구비할 때는, 소수의 특정한 고객들을 위 한 특정 상품보다는 보다 많은 사람들이 보편적으로 구입을 하는 제품을 구비하는 것이 기본인 것입니다”. 이사장은 스토 어의 제품들을 구비할 때, 손님들을 쫓아가지 않는다고 한다. “내가 어떤 물건을 가지고 있다고 해서 모든 고객들이 저희 스 토어에 와서만 구입을 하지는 않습니다. 다른 스토어에서 구 입을 할 수도 있는 것이고, 반대로 다른 스토어 단골이라도 저 희 스토어에서 상품들을 구입할 수 있는 것입니다. 따라서, 손 님을 빼앗기 위해 가격만을 낮춘다는 것은 바람직한 방법이 아 September 2014 OTC Beauty Magazine

닙니다” 라며, 이사장은 다음과 같이 덧붙였다. “손님이 찾는 제품이 없으면, 그에 대체할 수 있는 제품을 권하면 됩니다. 손님이 원하는 상품을 모두 갖춰 놓을 수는 없지 않습니까?” 라고 반문하며, 다음과 같이 이어갔다. “제품을 처음 취급할 때 잘 팔린다고 해서 다 잘나가는 상품이라고 단정 지을 순 없 습니다”. 이사장은 제품을 처음 취급하기 시작하면, 그 제품 을 구입한 사람이 다시 와서 그 제품을 다시 구매하는지가 관 건이라고 한다. 만약, 그렇지 않다면 처음에 많이 팔았다고 해 도, 바로 제품을 취급하지 않는다고 한다. 물론 스토어 면적 이 넓어서 모든 종류의 제품들을 구비해 놓으면 그만큼 스토 어를 방문하는 사람들이 늘어나는 것은 자명한 사실이다. 하 지만, 비즈니스라는 것은 자본을 좀더 현명하게 운영하여 수 익을 내는 것이 중요하다. 3개월에 한 두 개 판매되는 제품들 은 차라리 치워버리고, 그 공간과 자금으로 좀더 유통이 빠른 제품을 구비하는 것이 현명한 방법일 수도 있다. 물론, 지역 이나 스토어의 특성에 따라 차이가 있기는 하지만 말이다. 또 한, 이사장은, 스토어를 운영하기 위해 가장 중요한 요소 3가 지를 고객, 상품, 직원으로 뽑았다. “이 세가지가 잘 맞아 떨 어져야 엄청난 효과를 볼 수 있습니다. 그렇지 않고서는 좋은 판매를 만들어 낼 수 없습니다” 아무리 좋은 제품을 가지고 있 다 해도 스토어에서 직접 판매를 하는 직원들이 고객을 잘 보 필해야 해야 판매가 이루어 지는 것이고, 스토어에서 아무리 좋은 서비스를 한다고 해도 고객들이 스토어를 방문하지 않 으면 소용이 없는 것이다. 또한, 서비스만 좋고 제품이 고객들 의 구미를 당기지 못하면 이 또한 판매로 연결 되지 않는다고 한다. 이사장은 이 세가지가 잘 조화를 이뤘을 때, 그 스토어 가 경쟁력을 가질 수 있고, 그 스토어 만의 색깔이 생기는 것 이라고 강조한다. 이사장은 “저는 스토어들이 모여 있는 것이 더 시너지 효과를 낸다고 생각합니다” 라며 보통의 스토어 오너들이 생각하고 76

있는 논리를 정면으로 반박하였다. “물론, 오늘 저희 스토어에 올 사람이 근처에 있는 다른 스토어로 가서 제품 구입을 하면 그만큼 저의 매상은 떨어지게 됩니다. 하지만, 장기적으로 볼 때, 모두에게 이익이 되는 것입니다”. 이사장의 말은 다음과 같다. 10명이 햄버거를 먹는 인구였는데, 하나였던 햄버거 가 게가 두 개, 세 개가 되면, 햄버거를 먹는 인구도 15명, 20명으 로 늘어난다는 얘기이다. 뷰티 서플라이로 비교를 하면, 현재 흑인들이 주 고객층을 이루고 있지만, 뷰티 서플라이가 더 많 아지면, 다른 인종들도 뷰티 서플라이 스토어를 한번 들러보 고, 구매를 하고, 그러다 보면 다른 뷰티 서플라이 스토어도 편 하게 들락날락 거릴 수 있다는 이론이다. 틀린 말은 아니었다. 20년 전만해도 뷰티 서플라이는 오로지 흑인들만을 바라보고 하는 비즈니스였다. 하지만 이제는 백인, 남미인 들의 뷰티 서 플라이 방문 비중도 점점 늘어나고 있는 추세이다. “일요일은 문을 닫습니다” 라고 이사장은 이야기 한다. 하지만 주위의 다른 동 업종 스토어들은 모두 문을 연다고 한다. “처음 에는 조금 매상이 떨어지기는 했습니다. 하지만 지금은 손님들 이 일요일에 구입을 못하니, 토요일에 좀더 많이 구입을 하고 있습니다” 라고 한다. 눈앞의 이익만을 보자면 절대로 행할 수 없는 일이다. 하지만 이사장말로는 이제는 손님들이 익숙해져 서 토요일날 미리 구매를 하는 현상이 만들어 지고 있다고 한 다. 사람은 벌어지지 않은 미래의 일보다는 눈앞에서 일어나는 일들에 더욱 신경을 곤두세우기 마련이다. 눈앞에서 손님이 찾 는 제품이 없어 빈손으로 나가는 손님을 본다면, 당연히 속이 상할 수 있는 것이다. 하지만, 그러한 것에만 너무 연연하다 보 면 조바심만 생기게 될 뿐이다. 본인의 확신으로 스토어의 특 성을 만들어 나가다 보면, 시간이 지남에 따라 고객들도 자연 스럽게 받아드릴 것이다. 남들을 쫓아가려고 노력하는 시간에 본인만의 스토어 특성을 만들어 나가는 것이 장기적인 측면에 선 훨씬 좋은 비즈니스 성과를 가져올 것이다.

Clipper Tips for the CollegeBound Student This is the month when students are heading back to college. For most of these young men, that means being away from their favorite barber/stylist for months at a time and a dramatic change to their regular grooming routines. You can help them keep in style by suggesting the right tools to use while they’re away. Andis makes several professional-grade tools that consumers can use to meet their personal grooming needs at school or at home. The Pivot Motor Combo is a budget-friendly, clipper/trimmer set good for general cutting and trimming on all types of hair. Both tools feature pivot motors that deliver enough power to cut through even the thickest hair—dry or damp. This combo includes a full set of easy-to-use attachment combs to help achieve a variety of hair lengths and is packaged with a case for convenient storage. The SuperLiner Trimmer with shaver head attachment is a versatile, rotary motor tool for men wanting a clean close shave, but who do not have the time or skills for a straight razor shave. Because it’s two tools in one, the SuperLiner is perfect for the busy student. They can use the trimmer blade to clean up and shape the hairline or sideburns and then snap-off the blade and attach the shaver head to finish up. It’s quick and simple. The SlimLine Pro Trimmer is the ideal tool for the student on the go. Its cordless design and compact size means it can be easily tucked into a backpack for weekend road trips. At 5 ounces, this lightweight trimmer packs a powerful punch that can be used to dry shave and create clean outlines. Best of all, it has a close-cutting T-blade to achieve a barbershop-clean look. Don’t forget to recommend care and maintenance products to your customers to keep their tools running smoothly. Proper care will extend tool life and improve cutting performance—both contributing to a happy customer!

Beauty Links and Linkages Charity is just a click away. Linkages to personal, customizable campaigns can access the charity, cause or individualized empowerment program of your customers. Some peer to peer campaigns can help you partner with a customer to generate funds for a local cause or a personal mission. Consumers want to be more proactive and involved about charitable issues. They want to do more than donate. They want to contribute to a cause that reflects their issues. Not all cause related campaigns focus on disasters, cures or environmental stewardship. Your actual OTC customer may want to donate to a beauty cause. Beauty product campaigns can be translated into empowerment, independence or an improved self-image. There is a trend among manufacturers to go beyond the persona of outward beauty and to delve into the inner concerns and causes that relate to the consumer. Manufacturers are becoming more sensitive to the person to whom they market products. One manufacturer recently engaged in a beauty campaign to fight against the unrealistic images of weight and image. They shed light on the way the fashion and entertainment industry manufacturers impose superficial standards for women and young girls. The campaign was not designed to cure cancer; it was designed to boost the consumer’s morale and self-esteem. Purchases were made based on the connection with a company that connected to their personal plight—wellness, retirement, antiaging. Consumers may not mail in money but they will engage with a cause by linking websites or taking an action.

Follow Your Clippers and your Heart

Creating a community outreach program for your organization is without a doubt the most fulfilling venture you will take on as an organization. Recently, my partner John Dillard and I created Follow Your Clippers and a new category for barbers to participate in during our barber competitions. We call it “The Transformation” and we identify 6-10 men in the given city we plan to hold a barber competition. We groom them from head to toe in an effort to help them find employment or simply build their self-esteem. This is our small way of giving back to the local community. Here are some tips to help you develop a plan of action. •

Define your business’ values: A great place to start is your mission statement. Most companies use their mission statement as the philosophy that guides their daily operations. Clarifying your mission will help you see the natural connection between your organization and a potential charity partner.You will be able to help identify other goals more readily in other areas of your business. Determine where your customers are donating: Survey your customers to identify which causes and nonprofits they support. Demographic profiles may provide you with more insight about the cares and concerns of your customers. Identify what is important to them and any specific causes they may support on their own. Choosing a cause which resonates with your customer shows you are in tune with the matters that are important to them. Don’t forget your employees: As the heart and soul of a business, employees’ concerns should be taken into consideration as well. Identify if there is a need coming from within your company. Choosing a cause that your employees care about will get everyone excited and yield better participation. Charity starts at home: Always remember to speak with your own family and determine if there are programs they care about and pinpoint the needs with your own neighborhood or community such as elderly care, homelessness, and above all child hunger.

Keep up the good work!

Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) continues to exemplify the energy and creativity that drive the beauty industry. As such, 2014 proved to be a record year for the show both in terms of the largest and most international number of attendees and the largest number of participating exhibitors. CPNA prides itself on uniting attendees and exhibitors from the Americas and beyond, acting as the ultimate platform for networking, product launches, and cultivating new business relationships. Encompassing all sectors of the industry under one venue, CPNA remains the single most important forum for the beauty industry in the United States. The show is organized by North American Beauty Events, a joint venture between BolognaFiere Group, a leading Italian-based organizer of international trade shows such as Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna, and the Professional Beauty Association, one of North America’s largest and most influential trade associations representing all sectors of the professional beauty industry. “Cosmoprof North America marks a new success and shows another encouraging sign of the growth of the US market. CPNA asserts itself as the leading beauty event in the North American market thanks to the effective partnership that we have cultivated with PBA, the authority for the professional beauty world in the US,” said Duccio Campagnoli, President of BolognaFiere Group and SoGeCos. The event, which was held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada from July 13 – 15, featured a sold out show floor with 946 exhibiting companies and close to 27,000 attendees, a 4 percent increase over the previous year. As in past years, CPNA attracted many new and innovative brands in addition to industry leaders such as CONAIR, CND, Essie, Helen of Troy, HCT Packaging, L’Oreal Technique, OPI Nail, Orly, NYX, RUSK, Toly and Zotos International, as well as notable retailers such as Sephora, Nordstrom and Ulta. CPNA continues to further solidify its position in the U.S. marketplace as the premiere international beauty destination and featured an array of importers, distributors, manufacturers and global beauty leaders all under one roof. This year’s event delivered a strong international presence with exhibitors from 39 countries, 10 official Country Pavilions and a contingency of foreign buyers from 25 different countries. International Presence Continues to Grow at CPNA The International Buyer Program served as a liaison between international buyers and exhibiting companies. The delegation of qualified buyers from abroad attended the show and met one-on-one with exhibitors with matching profiles. This year, the total number of international exhibiting companies and countries represented was higher than ever. There were 354 international 86

OTC Beauty Magazine September 2014

exhibitors representing a total of 40 countries (a 7 percent increase). There was a large increase of companies coming from countries such as Japan, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom. Aside from individual international exhibitors, there were 10 Country Pavilions from Brazil, China, Italy, South Korea, Pakistan, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan and Turkey. BOUTIQUE and Beauty Box Partnership This year, CPNA also brought back the successful sampling concept, BOUTIQUE. This sampling bar allowed attendees to select deluxe-sized samples, including the latest in up-and-coming cosmetics, skin care, nails, hair and some classic beauty favorites. Once at the sampling bar, attendees could hand-pick seven deluxe samples from 20 featured exhibiting brands in exchange for a small charitable donation that will benefit City of Hope, a leading research, treatment and education center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. Donations collected exceeded last year’s amounts with slightly over $13,300 raised as a result of this onsite initiative. As part of a unique collaboration, a limited edition Cosmoprof Boutique box was available for sale exclusively on in August after the show to consumers at large. Industry Leaders Share Expertise at CPNA Every year CPNA brings industry leaders to the forefront to share innovative ideas and experiences that will help the beauty industry better understand the dynamics and market trends, current and future. Special education seminars were well received. Business and industry leaders from multiple sectors of the industry participated in round-table discussions and panels to share their knowledge and insights in sold out classes. CPNA was also proud to unveil the first ever INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE AREA located on the show floor. The area consisted of the EXPERIENCE AREA and the INTERACTIVE TECHNOLOGY AREA which allowed attendees the opportunity to play and experience unique concepts. The EXPERIENCE AREA housed inside a container was hosted by Pearlfisher Futures, a leading design consultancy agency with offices in London and New York City. The presentation highlighted key areas of macro cultural change that are shaping our future view of beauty, health and wellness and aimed to help visitors understand what these changes mean for their brands and consumers. The inaugural Interactive Technology Area program allowed attendees to immerse themselves in the big picture of the digital landscape and explore tools to enhance their business. Cosmoprof North America 2015 will take place July 12 – 14 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

National Professional Salon Industry Celebrates at Spirit of Life® Awards Gala City of Hope honors Harlan Kirschner, president of The Kirschner Group

Jeffrey Kirschner and Bethany Kirschner Crellin present their dad, Harlan Kirschner, with his Spirit of Life Award

Special guest speaker, Chris Crellin, who is Harlan’s son-in-law and cancer survivor

More than 850 salon industry executives and supporters attended City of Hope’s National Professional Salon Industry (NPSI) Spirit of Life® Award Gala on July 12, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas to honor Harlan Kirschner, president of The Kirschner Group, Inc. City of Hope is a leading research, treatment and education center for cancer, diabetes and life-threatening diseases, and The Spirit of Life Award is the institution’s most prestigious philanthropic honor. The award is presented annually to a beauty industry leader who has demonstrated outstanding business and philanthropic achievement. “Celebrating Cures,” the theme for this year’s event, celebrated the hope of new treatments, even cures, for cancer and other diseases. The celebration featured a joint cocktail reception with the Professional Beauty Association, a silent auction, MINI Cooper giveaway, and a special performance by Grammy winner Michael Bolton. To date, the “Celebrating Cures” campaign has raised more than $850,000 for City of Hope. The special guest speaker, Chris Crellin, who is also Kirschner’s son-in-law, highlighted the importance of “Celebrating Cures.” Crellin lost his father to the disease when he was a small child and, as a 15-year-old, battled for his own life against Hodgkin lymphoma. At the time, as an athletic teen and with his entire high school career ahead of him, Crellin found his diagnosis devastating. Now, he told the audience, he is 15 years cancer-free and recently celebrated the birth of his first-born son (and Kirschner’s first grandchild). Kirschner accepted The Spirit of Life Award from his children, Jeffrey Kirschner and Bethany Kirschner Crellin. Having been in the beauty industry for over 30 years, Kirschner built The Kirschner Group to be the largest and only global sales organization in the professional beauty industry. Kirschner has spent the past decade serving on the National Professional Salon Industry Council being an advocate and supporter of City of Hope. “We’re thrilled to honor Harlan for his tremendous support of City of Hope and the search for a cure for cancer,” said Kathleen P. Talbot, director of philanthropy, City of Hope’s NPSI. “Through his commitment and generosity, City of Hope can develop more efficient, targeted treatments for patients with cancer. His leadership brings greater hope, faith and possibilities to researchers, physicians and patients everywhere.” Also at the event: • The 2014 MINI Cooper, donated by Eddie Jhin and Jinny Corp., was won by Teresa Lane of HairUWear, a twotime cancer survivor herself. Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez announced the winner to screams from the audience. • Plans for the remodel of the Positive Image Center at City of Hope were unveiled at the event. The center focuses on the emotional and physical well-being of patients struggling with the appearance-related side effects of surgery and cancer treatment, providing them with professional beauty services from licensed cosmetologists. Belvedere, a leader in the manufacture of salon furniture and equipment, is donating its time and product to redesign the Positive Image Center and create a space that is both functional and a place of tranquility for the patients. • City of Hope’s 2015 Spirit of Life Award honoree was announced as Steve Goddard, president of hair product manufacturer Pravana. • Michael Bolton concluded the night with a medley of his greatest hits.

On Sunday, August 3rd Jinny Miami had a VIP Special International Tradeshow for their domestic and international top customers. This was a successful and special event to which Jinny Miami invited only a certain amount of vendors and customers. It was a very different concept for a Jinny Tradeshow. Ms. Lan Kim Wilkerson, International Sales Manager, stated, “We needed to support our international customers by hosting an event like this, and it all came together perfectly. We have accomplished our goal in servicing the needs of our international customers.” Andy Son, Domestic Sales Manager, added, “We treat our domestic customers pretty much the same all year around, but I feel strongly that our company needs to support those customers who are very loyal to the company. This type of an event was the answer to those loyal customers. My ultimate goal is for my sales people to add more domestic customers whenever we do this special event again.” Lastly, Eddie Jhin, Top Manager of Jinny United, closed with a speech after this event. He stated, “Jinny has not had a tradeshow for almost two years now and I do not see us doing a Jinny Tradeshow in 2015 either. When Miami members wanted to have their own tradeshow, I initially turned them down, but when they mentioned that this event would be different than what we have done in the past I was convinced 100% and wanted to support them fully.” He added, “Our company has a big impact on our industry and I am fully aware that most of our customers want Jinny to come back with our original tradeshow in 2015, but we need to redefine the true concept and the meaning of what my father originally created and invented. Once we invent the new way to come up with the true meaning of a tradeshow, Jinny will announce it to all of our customers and vendors, and will once again have our tradeshows.”

New Texture Manageability® System Extends to Strength of Nature’s Soft & Beautiful Botanicals Line after Incredible Success Strength of Nature, the new owners of Soft & Beautiful, TCB and Proline, and the makers of African Pride, Dream Kids, Beautiful Textures, Elasta QP and Profectiv MegaGrowth, have revolutionized the hair industry with their Reversible® Straightening Texture Manageability® hair care category. The new system, coined Texture Manageability® System, is currently available in Beautiful Textures, African Pride and Dream Kids, but due to popular demand, will now be offered under the Soft & Beautiful Botanicals brand. In four quick steps, the system helps users maintain silky straight hair for up to six weeks without damaging their hair and without intense heat-straightening methods and harsh chemicals. The Soft & Beautiful system is formulated with a distinct blend of plant extracts and herbal conditioners to deliver incredible softness and shine. Popular natural hair vloggers Ms. Vaughn (86k subscribers on YouTube) and Chime Edwards (189k subscribers on YouTube) have both tried the Texture Manageability® System numerous times and raved over the benefits. “I have to give this product a 9.9 out of 10,” says Ms. Vaughn in a video review. With over 10k followers on Instagram and thousands of shares and likes on Facebook, consumers consistently comment that the system meets their needs. “Can I get a lifetime supply? I’m on my third kit and I don’t plan on ever going back!” say Facebook fan, Christa Marie McDuell. Celebrities Sevyn, Atlantic Records recording artist and songwriter, and Angela Simmons, fashion icon and Strength of Nature global beauty ambassador, have also praised the system. “My hair is very important to me—to keep it managed and tamed,” says Simmons. “I love the system! It’s great! My hair was super shiny. We didn’t use any products after using the Inner-Active Leave-in Conditioner. It was soft and it was easy to comb afterwards!” The secret is the Inner-Active Leave-In Conditioner, which is infused with nourishing butters and amino acids, and has no harsh chemicals. This leave-in conditioner penetrates the hair for 15-20 minutes, which causes the hair to soften, making it easier to detangle. Once the detangling process is complete, the hair is blowdried and flat-ironed, creating silky straight hair with unmatched body and shine in a fraction of the time of most traditional straightening methods.


OTC Beauty Magazine September 2014

Here’s How it Works:

Step 1: Shampoo your hair. Step 2: Apply the Inner-Active Conditioner and detangle hair. Step 3: Blow-dry hair. Step 4: Flat-iron the hair to seal in the conditioning agents of the Texture Manageability® System and get up to six weeks of straightness.

The result is sleek, healthy hair that’s easy to manage. The Texture Manageability® System allows users to maintain smooth, straight hair in between relaxer touch-ups or switch straightening methods for a period of time. Natural-haired women can instantly flip back to wearing their natural hair at any time by simply washing it with a clarifying shampoo. This new technology is not a partial relaxer, keratin treatment or texturizer.

Softer, Healthier Hair:

For those looking to hydrate and restore frizzy hair, the system infuses key botanical ingredients into the hair to revitalize damaged tresses. Simply apply the Inner-Active Leave-in Conditioner and style as usual to reveal softer, smoother strands with enviable body.
